“USA Cycling is excited to collaborate with USA Triathlon on the Endurance Exchange Conference. This is as an outstanding opportunity to help elevate the endurance sports coaching industry in an effort to grow bicycle racing and multisport in the U.S. We are confident this conference and future editions will play a role in helping prepare both our sports to capitalize not just on our Paris 2024 Olympic successes, but the opportunities coming with the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles,” said Jon Tarkington, Director of Coaching Development & Education.
USA Triathlon hosted its inaugural Endurance Exchange conference in January 2020 in Tempe, Arizona to offer endurance sports professionals and athletes the best educational and networking opportunities in the industry. After hosting 2021 and 2022’s conferences virtually, Endurance Exchange returned to in-person in 2023 in Austin, Tex. The 2024 conference will take place January 4-7, 2024, at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte.
The 2024 Endurance Exchange will cover three educational pathways for coaches, Technical Knowledge, Growth and Development, and the Business of Coaching, with cycling-specific curriculum and speakers incorporated throughout each track.
With USA Triathlon and USA Cycling’s professional communities coming together, it’s an opportunity for our collective coaching community to expand their horizons into new areas and explore new avenues for professional growth within the endurance sports community while enjoying the advantages of a shared network.
